Bill Pollock
President & CEO

Susan Russo has been in the staffing business since 1992.  After years of working for other staffing companies, Susan was motivated to strike out on her own; she wanted to start up a new company that would serve clients better—that would truly work on their behalf.  Her goals for serving her clients were simple:

  • Reduce the cost of hiring new employees for clients
  • Increase the quality of the applicant pool by referring only the most qualified candidates directly to clients
  • Eliminate competition between clients for quality candidates
  • Take all of the recruitment work off her clients’ hands—and off their desks
  • Help to increase clients’ bottom lines by sourcing and attracting top talent to their companies

With this in mind, Susan developed a business model that is both unique and effective; Susan Russo and Associates meets the above goals—and more.  But how?  It’s simple.  SRA lowers clients’ placements costs by attaining a high placement ratio.  Susan Russo offers a unique business model that establishes strong commitments and relationships with its clients.  Our dedicated staffing professionals work with our clients in a partnership; we specialize in identifying top talent for your specific hiring needs—with a focus on long-term employee retention.

You have successfully filled every position we have assigned to you with extraordinary people who have the background, skills and experience that, in some cases, have gone beyond our expectations.

Your firm’s approach to recruiting is professional, focused, creative and cost effective and we consider the professional staff at Susan Russo and Associates part of our team.

Congratulations on building such a successful business.

Susan Russo and Associates is efficient.  On average, Susan Russo and Associates places candidates for clients within one to three weeks of receiving their job orders.  We are able to do this for several reasons.  We use “best practices” for all hiring categories.  We do in-depth qualifying and reference checking—so you don’t have to.

Also, our staffing professionals focus on all job orders equally.  We do not take on more than we can handle—our goal is successful placement for all of your open positions.  Each of our recruiters works on only a manageable number of orders so we can focus on our clients’ needs.  We are able to carefully screen each applicant—and send you only the very best candidates for each job.  And, we gather, develop, and send you detailed, specific documentation on each candidate.  When an SRA candidate comes in to your office for an interview, there are no surprises for you or for them; clients and candidates alike have all the background information they need to make each interview effective.  Because of the care we put into the recruitment process, SRA is able to successfully fill almost every job order it gets.

Clients have said the candidates hired through our pro-active process have raised the bar for the quality of employees they now hire.  These clients feel that Susan Russo and Associates is now a part of their team.  SRA would like the opportunity to be a part of your team, too.

You helped tremendously with finding and screening qualified candidates for us.  You produced exactly the result we were looking for, a great placement for a very important job.  We will be using you again and very likely soon.
